Address &FC146490 is at offset &0001FFDC in module ‘WindowManager’ I cannot reproduce the crash using only the three steps given above, neither does the bounding box disappear in mid-drag. The box behaviour is a bit of a clue, what else is messing up the works. Having a Edit window open suffices, then I get both the crash and the disappearing box. Ha […]
I tripped up on a Wimp drag & drop bug yesterday. In the interests of saving paper, I’m going to reuse this thread, having reduced the operations to a minimal set with things everyone has: Run Draw, open a blank drawing Open !InetSetup, go to the Internet/Host names dialogue (mainly for some pre-typed strings) Select the hostname, drag it to the Draw dra […]
Meanwhile, in an amazing display of “talking back control”, Trump says no more Huawai and no taxing American internet giants, and Johnson says yes sir. Because in the EU at least the UK had a vote and a voice. Now, in an effort to take back control they will have neither, and will soon realise the effects of that.
Surely by definition, once someone has been “bought” by an interest group, they cease to be following science? I’m happy with that point of view, certainly. I probably should have put quotes around the word “scientists” somewhere. Thanks for the link to that article, David. Interesting and useful! My inspirational physics teacher, Philip Titchmarsh, was clea […]

There were a few folks who were saying that, but the scientific consensus most certainly wasn’t. Fifty years ago awareness of the greenhouse effect was already seventy years old, and it was known to be likely […]
Our Risc PC was supplied with 100 high quality JPEGs in a slideshow application. We have managed to overwrite one of these images, sa70 (two polar bears) and we do not have a backup as when we first set up backups of the Risc PC we avoided including things like the audio, video and image demos because they were bulky. Would anyone be able to supply us with a […]

It’s scientists who haven’t been bought by the oil industry […] Surely by definition, once someone has been “bought” by an interest group, they cease to be following science? For the avoidance of doubt, I’m largely with yourself and Rick – rather than with Andrew and Steffen. The actual science is pretty compelling that something significant needs to be done […]
